I Have Always Been A Storm, Organized By James Aarons + Mark Taylor

Northern California artists James Aarons and Mark Taylor have tapped into a vein of emotion connecting a number of NIAD artists. “I Have Always Been a Storm” is a group exhibition of more than 33 objects, drawings and paintings, features weather patterns, landscapes, portraits and city structures that vibrate with sentiment and color. Although, the works are often full to overflowing with marks and ideas, there is a deliberate insistence of contemplation within them that seems to be asking, “Are you looking at me?”  Reply: “Yes, of course. And we can’t look away.”

Featured in the exhibition are works from Lois Ann Barnett, Krissi Dean, Luis Estrada, Carlos Fernandez, Joe Flores, Sylvia Fragoso, Peter Harris, Erica Martinez, Dorothy Porter, Demetri Petroupolos, Kevin Randolph, Elena Rossi, Jonathan Valdivias, Jonathan Velazquez, Michael Walker, and Billy White.

Here is a selection of highlights from the exhibition that are available for sale online. Enjoy the show (and remember to view a slideshow of the exhibition, simply click on one of the thumbnail images below.)

Essay: Works From James Aarons

James Aarons began making porcelain tablets several years ago as a project mashing together his thoughts on the now ubiquitous iPad and the most classic of all stone tablets, the Ten Commandments. The series has morphed and grown from a restrained meditation on error-smudged lined paper to pristine surfaces on which he sketches ideas for future large works or a meandering whim of the moment. “Essay: Works From James Aarons” is a selection of works from this series.
